Great show from start to finish
This is a great recording of a great show. It starts off smoking and Derek and company keep it going all the way through. This is a must have show.

theater helps recording
A couple of unique things about this show which I think make the recording so good:
1. Unfortunately for the band but good for fans, the show was promoted poorly, good seats were expensive and the turnout was low. We called a week before the show and got three tickets in the left side of the orchaestra, front row.
2. The Pabst Theater is an acoustic masterpiece and had just undergone a major renovation and restoration. The place dates to the early 20th Century and is a Milwaukee landmark.
I think the mix of those two things made everybody more aware of the performance, if that makes sense. I can't overstate the acoustics in the Pabst. Between songs, you can hear a conversation between two people on the other side of the theater. The place is dialed in that perfectly. People don't talk or make a lot of noise because the whole theater can hear your voice clearly!
Plus, the crowd was so small it was obvious everyone there was a nut for the band and wanted to see the show.
I'm glad to report when Derek came back to the Pabst 9/16/04, the tickets were cheaper, the promotion was better and the crowd was several times larger. People still kept mostly quiet between songs, though, so whenever that recording turns up, it should sound crisp and clear.

Scott Mcpherin did a wonderful job producing this show...it sounds great and The band is smokin'..I'm gonna watch out for more shows taped by him.

I highly recommend this show. Recording is crisp, crowd noise minimal and the band is on. Trucks really shines here. Best I've downloaded to date.

Here's the setlist/track listing for this show.
And for those debating on whether or not to d/l this show, do so. Its an excellent show overall and a stellar recording. Great job Scott! Don't know if the crowd was just particularly respectful that night or what but there's is only crowd noise when its appropriate (end of tunes and some nice applause after solos), no chatter or glasses clinking. Again great job Scott. Now who's got the Shns for the 4/9 show w/ Joshua Redman sitting in?
